  2. MSN......education vs leadership
    My opinion is that you should go for the leadership track, as it may be more versatile. Overall, it probably doesn't matter -- the MSN is going to make you more qualified than most of your peers...

  3. Office Manager -- worthwhile to get experience or no?
    Thanks for the replies, everyone. I think, at this time, I'm going to pass up the office manager opportunity and continue to look for opportunities in my unit and in the hospital. Just in the past...

  4. Office Manager -- worthwhile to get experience or no?
    I recently switched my MSN major to Nursing Executive Leadership. Switched from FNP because... well, to be honest, I became pretty disillusioned with the FNP role halfway into the program. Grades...

  5. Masters of Science in Leadership and Managment
    neuroRN14: Just for clarification, are you talking about the MSN Leadership and Management (nursing-specific), or the MS Management and Leadership (under the business school)? Just asking, because...

  6. What university did you attend after graduating from Western Governors University?
    I didn't take the MSN at WGU for a couple of reasons. WGU didn't (and still doesn't) offer a Nurse Practitioner option when I decided to pursue my MSN and I wanted local name recognition for my MSN....

  7. MSN vs MBA
    I think the short answer is going to be -- it depends. I think the longer answer is going to be -- it doesn't matter. I compared a LOT of MBA and MHA programs before I decided to just bite the bullet...

  8. What university did you attend after graduating from Western Governors University?
    I was accepted into the University of Memphis MSN/FNP program before I even graduated from WGU. No issues with the GPA. Halfway through the FNP program, I ended up switching my MSN major to Executive...

  9. WGU online ASN-BSN program?
    I finished my WGU RN-to-BSN last year, and it was probably the best thing I did for my career. My WGU degree enabled me to enter my local university's MSN program without any question as to the...

  10. nursing & pharm tech
    The short answer is: it depends. If you mean you want to take the pharmacy tech classes while taking your pre-req's for RN school, then you can probably do this. If you want to take them while you're...

  11. WGU graduations
    As a side note, many traditional brick and mortar schools hold their commencements off-campus, so this isn't something unique to distance learning programs.

  12. Experiences with Western Governors University???
    Please enlighten us as to why one of the most affordable, non-profit, CCNE-accredited universities is the "worse school ever"? I suspect that you won't be able to articulate an argument worth...

  13. Best major before BSN/MSN program?
    I'll echo what everyone else has said -- your previous degree subject doesn't matter a hill of beans, only the GPA and whether or not you've managed to knock out some of those pre-req's with it. ...

  14. May 1st Start Date WGU
    You can add University of Memphis, TN to this list. I was accepted last year before I even finished my BSN at WGU. I'm now in my second semester.

  16. MBA in Healthcare Management
    You can't do two concurrent programs at WGU (i.e. both the WGU MSN and the WGU MBA) but my MSN is through my local university. My enrollment advisor sent my request up the chain of command and, while...

  17. MBA in Healthcare Management
    I've been teetering on the fence about getting the MBA-HM along with my FNP. After seeing a couple of APN clinical manager positions posted at my preferred future employer, I've decided to take the...

  18. BSN or CEN?
    Unfortunately, I misread and misunderstood your intentions. All apologies. I would argue, however, that you probably did do some work in preparing for the CEN, albeit perhaps not purposefully. If...

  19. BSN or CEN?
    Let's not fool ourselves here. The BSN is longer, but is not "much more work". More busywork, maybe. More time spent learning about research methods and leadership, maybe. But, not more real work. ...

  20. BSN or CEN?
    The short answer is: it depends. You've already answered your own question, in part. If you're working at -- or looking to transfer to -- a Magnet hospital, you'll need that BSN under your belt....

  21. Is RN to BSN while working full time possible?
    That was with transferring in my ASN. I don't know if WGU has changed their policies on transfer credit, but when I came into the program, the ASN waived the vast majority of GenEd classes. The AASN,...

  22. Is RN-BSN at WGU appropriate for a new nurse?
    You can and definitely should do the WGU BSN now. Don't wait to get any experience, because no experience is necessary for any of the classes. What you don't already know, you will learn. Good luck.

  23. Is RN to BSN while working full time possible?
    WGU's program is designed for full-time RN's. In fact, I've read stories of people being denied entry because they only had a PRN or part-time job, but I'm not sure how often this happens. Like...

  25. What is the quickest masters degree?
    As you've discovered, the WGU GPA is an equivalent of 3.0. Your admissions officer said that if you'd had a 3.0, you'd be in (which, by the way, is ridiculous to make that much fuss about 0.8 points,...
